MAC's Oil Control Lotion is amazing! If you are concerned about shine on your face like I am, try this product out! My makeup artist applied this stuff on my face as a primer for my makeup, and it worked just as well as any other primer I've ever tried, but even BETTER. I had been using the Smashbox Photofinish Primer before, but when it came to oil control, I would have to say that it was second rate compared to MAC's Oil Control Lotion.
I tried running around all day with MAC's Oil Control Lotion on, and by the end of the day there was no shine at all. And even when I constantly wiped the sweat running down my face, my makeup stayed put. I did not have to blot my face at all or add any extra powder because MAC's Oil Control Lotion had absorbed everything. It was just amazing, how my makeup really adhered to this lotion.
Actually, its effectiveness is evident when you first apply it to your face, because it goes on wet, but then it dries really fast and takes away any shine you had before. Then during the day you don't have to worry about refreshing your makeup because it will always look fresh with this lotion. Plus, it is really beneficial to your skin since it contains antioxidants and a balanced pH level to help you prevent future breakouts. What more could you ask for, really?
I would highly suggest that you give this product a shot. It really works wonders! Think about it: you wouldn't need to worry about the shine on your face, you wouldn't have to run to the bathroom to touch up your makeup throughout the day, and you can go out in the world with the confidence that you have a fresh face! If you are interested in getting this product, MAC's Oil Control Lotion is available at www.MacCosmetics.com for $29.50. And trust me, it is sooo worth it.
